Notes

This recipe serves 12 because they make great leftovers and freeze extremely well! Freeze them in individual serving sizes in freezer bags or plastic storage containers, then just defrost for a few minutes in the microwave for a quick dinner. They also work great with leftover shredded beef or pork.
